Betsy is on a roll! 2 National wins in 2 countries and World Winner!

Okay, so its been a while and I need to recap how we've been doing.

First we'll start with the star, Ch. McVans Be Bop Baby "Betsy"!

Since our last update:

Betsy has won multiple Groups, and 5 Specialties, to include:

The STCA National Rotating Specialty at New Caste in May 2012 - Judge Mr. G Penta
STCGP Specialty at New Castle May 2012 Judge Mr. Randy Weckman

We ventured to Canada where Betsy won the Canadian STC National and finished her Championship in 3 shows! Thank you Mr. Fred Ferris and the other judges who recognized her.

Washington State STC - June 2012 Judge Mr. Hossfeld The following all Breeds got her a Group 1 and Group 4 STC of Chicago - June 2012 - Judge Mr. Clay Coady and a Group3 at Grayslake in tough competition!

She's currently ranked #2 in Breed and #3 All breed with some tough competitors this year.

ALso in May we took her to the World Dog Show in Austria where she was best Bitch for the CACIB and received the World Winner Title 2012!!! The entry was over 100 scotties and want an honor. Congrats to Rico, one of the top scotties in Europe who was BOB!

Also we've had fun with our other clients: Two wires have finished their championship, Ellie owned by Jo Hubbs and Viking, owned by Jeremi Bryant who finished in style under Judge Mr. Peter Green with a 4 point major in Grayslake Terrier, going best of Winners.

Our little Norwich Valentine in limited showing has managed to squeeze into the top 20 in breed points with several notable breed wins, and is ranked 25 in GCH points.

Mom finished her scot Melody from the bred by class with all majors her last weekend out! Go Mom! Melody is out of Justin and Laura and a Marko grandson.

We've also managed some nice breed wins and notable specialty selects on Justin the Westie! Its been a busy past few months, we are taking some breaks through the summer due to heat, I don't like going to outdoor shows at this time of year, its too hot for the dogs, and too hot for the people!

I enjoyed a small judging assignment vacation at Great Western where I was asked to judge the STC of CA's specialty puppy and veteran sweepstakes, I had a blast! Until Next Time!

Betsy Best of Breed at Crufts 2012!!!!

Well its been a busy year so far and we've had no time to update!!! But here's a quick rundown....

In January Betsy had a total of 4 Group 1s and multiple Group Placements!

Justin the Westie had multiple group placements and Breed wins with the help of his owners for the groups!

I February we ventured to Westminster where Betsy was Award of Merit! The days prior she was Group 2 at the Terrier Specialty at Garden State under Clay Coady!

She also garnered a few more group placements including a Group 1 under Peggy B.McW.

At Chicago International we had a lot of success in all of our breeds:

Betsy was Best of Breed 3 of 4 days, including a nice Group 3 under Cindy Vogels.

Justin the Westie was Best of Breed one day under Mr. Desmond Murphy and Select Dog all the other days.

Angie the Corgie was Winners Bitch/BOW 2 out of 4 days and garnered a few points.

Thunder the Belgian Terv was also Best of Breed 3 out 4 days and Select one day.

In March Besty won her first Specialty of the year, making her 8th career specialty!

Angie the Corgie also picked up a major going Winners Bitch/BOW and WB the next day for 2 points.

THEN....we decided to venture to the 2012 Crufts Dog Show in England with Betsy, where she was awarded the Open Class, CC, and on to Best of Breed over 100+ scotties!!! She showed great in the group and we had a blast.

Thank you all for the support!
